A Techie Question Regarding Categories

I'd like to remove a few of the old categories. Not the posts themselves, just the category links in the sidebar. However, the only way to do that seems to be to individually recategorize each post (uh, not happening) or eliminate the entire category page and lose all my categories. Does anyone know how to remove, say, just one category without disturbing all of them?

Yes, yes! I mess with my categories all too much.

Go into "Edit Posts" in Blogger. On the left, you should see categories. Click on the category you want to remove.

Then, just to the right, at the top of your list of posts for that category, click "Select All." Little checkmarks should show up in all the boxes.

Then, in the Label Actions menu just to the left of that, scroll down to the very bottom where it says "Remove Category". Select the category you want to remove, and there you go!

If you want to put them into a different category, I would suggest you do that before you remove the original category.

I hope that makes sense. If not, you can contact me through my blog.
